To Acquire Happiness – NaPoWriMo #13

So many possibilities within a mind
To hold back heart for fear, regret,
How therein to happiness find?

Locked up tight will open none,
What ventures might you once have done:
So many possibilities within a mind.

Nothing gambled shall see no gain,
A greater growth can come from pain:
How therein to happiness find?

With ones’ thoughts the world is wrought,
Through hard-work the price is bought,
So many possibilities within a mind.

If you look back you shall be lost,
Cursed upon a tempest tossed,
How therein to happiness find?

Better than to face the wind,
And let not hardship determination rescind,
So many possibilities within a mind,
How therein to happiness find?
